Laakirchen, 12 October 2015
The majority shareholder of Miba AG, Mitterbauer Beteiligungs-Aktiengesellschaft
(MBAG) in today's shareholder meeting which was to decide on the squeeze-out and
delisting of Miba AG, requested the conditional increase of the cash
consideration from EUR 540 per share to EUR 565 per share. 
This increase will only become effective upon the three conditions that 

1.      no objection against the shareholders' resolution is put on record
during the shareholder meeting,
2.      no lawsuit for the contestation or rescission of the shareholders'
resolution is filed and 
3.      no application for a re-assessment of the cash consideration in
accordance with § 6 of the Austrian Squeeze-out Act is made.

This proposal followed an increase of the price offered by MBAG to the preferred
shareholders of Miba AG to EUR 565 per share on 18 September 2015 in the
concurrent voluntary takeover offer.

MBAG justified today's conditional rise in the squeeze-out price with saving
legal and consulting costs as well as time required for the related review
process in the interests of all shareholders. These savings can be passed on to
all remaining free float shareholders in the form of a conditionally increased
cash settlement if this cash compensation is not subject to a lengthy and costly
re-assessment process. 

The re-assessment of the cash consideration can be applied for until one month
after the publication of the registration of the squeeze-out with the commercial
register. Accordingly, only in the beginning of January 2016 it will be clear
whether the conditions are met and whether the increase of the cash
consideration has become effective.

The Extraordinary General Meeting has now unanimously approved this resolution
and the resolution on the squeeze out. Accordingly, the listing of Miba AG will
be terminated in the course of the fourth quarter of 2015.   

Irrespective of the squeeze-out now decided, the deadline to accept the MBAG's
concurrent voluntary takeover offer at EUR 565 per share will end on 26 November
